Since I began a part-time job a month ago, it has been a struggle to manage my time and energy and avoid squalor in my normally neat house. The following is a letter to my family:
Please be aware that "the maid" has cut her hours to part time. Today, she squeezed in a shower after making dinner, wiping up crumbs on the table and floor, mopping, vacuuming, washing, folding and putting away laundry, as well as other various household duties and doodies (baby and dog).
Her schedule no longer permits the completion of these things each and every day.
In short, find something undone, unclean, un-put-away, or in an otherwise unsatisfactory state and fix it!
I made the "o" in Mom a smiley face. I hope they laugh and then put something away or take out the trash.
